The car runs fine and I got no CEL, but I just curious to check if there are any fault codes on my W8 after did the tip. sport mode , and guess what I got:

16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0300 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent

I did some search on PW, and found some possibilities, like Bad ICM, spark plugs, plug cables, coils, etc, but mainly it's all about 1.8T or V6 engine. Is this the same thing also on our W8? Any VW experts please chime in, btw it's 2003 W8 Variant-Tiptronic transimission with about 42K miles on it. TIA

VAG-COM
Do you have a Bentley manual?
I'll check mine later - time to put my son to bed for the evening.

SOME codes are in there, though a few obscure W8 ones are not.

*Bentley doesn't tell us much more than you know.
You might delete and see if it shows up again.
At least then you know about WHEN it happened to show up again.
You are slightly past due for new sparkplugs (at 40k) if not done yet

Hey Stew, everything is fixed, and changed the spark plugs on the same time. Thanks for the reminder
